Ok, I live in Arizona so the percentage of blacks is really low. The last time I checked it was 5% on the census of 2011. I work with mostly Causcasions so you know where I am going with this. I was the only Black person working there and they recently hired 2 more Black people. (yey)
One male the other is female. The female looked latin from a far distance, then when I finally met her I realized she is light skinned. (I’m from New Orleans so I would say that she is “RED BONED”) Two of my co-workers who are white stated that she can’t be black because her hair is too straight” I told them that it is relaxed. They said; No if she were black we would know I mean look at your hair its all….. Then they didn’t finish their sentence. So I said Its all what? Natural or Nappy? Because my hair is in an afro right now. Anyway they just walked out of the office. It sort of irritated me in a way that some people are ignorant to natural black hair. Yeah , I get that we conformed to having our hair straight to look socially acceptable. But C’mon now!
